bookshop also has a copy of an updated edition of ‘Victory over the
Darkness’ by Neil T. Anderson (£8,99). He says in the introduction, “I
want to share my hope with you in the pages ahead. Your maturity is the
product of time, pressure, trials, tribulations, the knowledge of God’s

updated because, as Neil Anderson says in the acknowledgments at the
beginning of this edition of his book, “A lot of water has gone under
the bridge since the first edition went into print.”
